QOTW - May 30, 2009

It's 40 degrees outside, your AC is busted and there is no way you're using your stove/oven/microwave/slow cooker. What are you eating/drinking that isn't going to heat your place up any further but more importantly is going to refresh you like nothing else.

John will be enjoying a nice green salad with raisins and pumpkin seeds topped with a splash of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, accompanied with some home made hummus all washed down with a thirst quenching juice combining beets apples and carrots.

Liam too will be having a salad though his will feature tons of fresh field cucumber, some grape tomatoes from the garden, some avocado, some pepitas and a spoon of Renee's poppy seed dressing. He'll be washing it down with a small glass of Frangelico hazlenut liqueur on ice and finishing off with some watermelon for desert.

How will you be lowering your thermometer through taste? Let us know in the comments section below!

  1. I'm thinking gazpacho-maybe a watermelon, tomato, cucumber variation. I like to add a little spice on a hot day-inducing some sweat can cool everything down. So, I suggest adding a jalapeno to the mix.
    Lemonade with lavender is a favourite on sweltering summer days.
